is still lying to everybody who was near travis' home. let's go to beth karas and paul callan. beth, are those videos of her interrogation or her parents' interrogation ever going to see the light of the courtroom or, more importantly, the juror's eyes? >> well, some of jodi arias' interrogation that day or the next day when she admitted that she was there but two intruders did it, you are also showing sf stuff that the jury didn't see. if there's a penalty phase, her parents may get on the stand and her mom may talk about her problems and psychiatric problems and how jodi's friends begged for her to get help for her but she never did. >> i want to play a little more of the interrogation because it's a classic move of interrogators and they get up and leave the suspect alone to see what they say or do when they don't think anyone is watching. ♪ >> so paul callan, while that is a lovely rendition of dido's songs, it's an unusual way for a suspect to behave? >> it's a bizarre suspeway for suspect to behave. usually she would not be singing a song when left alone. but frankly, unless
to bring in our cnn legal analyst sounny hostin and paul callan. this has taken a long time to get to this stage, to charges. between seven and eight months long. does that sound like it's too long or just about right? >> no. it sounds like it's taken an awfully long time. i'm curious to know what the details are going to be. if we have photos of her being sexually assaulted or raped, that's against the law. we'll have to wait and see what law enforcement had in their hands at the time. >> you mentioned the photos. apparently the allegations are some of these photos were her naked with drawings on her body. i'm trying to equate that with the charge of sexual battery. what does that charge mean? >> i mean, the bottom line is, it's a sexual assault. if you have a rape including a sexual battery, you have someone being harmed and drawn on and that sort of thing, it escalates the behavior. but i completely agree with paul, this is -- i'm just shocked that law enforcement would take this long to act. this sort of situation happens all across our country. unfortunately, you have drinking

their case? paul callan is joining us now. paul, let's first talk about the mother of these two suspects if she were to come to the united states from russia, what legal issues could she potentially face? >> this poses, wolf, an enormously difficult issue for the united states. obviously, if they do not allow the mother to come for the burial of her older son and the trial of her younger son, i suppose we would be accused of lacking humanitarian spirit, but on the other hand we have seen many reports now indicating that she was possibly discussing jihad with her son. that she may have been involved in radicalizing her son. so authorities would have a legitimate basis to ban her from entering the united states. it will be verycertainly if she she'll be questioned by law enforcement authorities very closely about what she knows about her son's link toadist organizations. >> she also is facing an outstanding warrant on shoplifting charges. she allegedly stole a few thousand dollars worth of clothes from some store a store in massachusetts. so she effectively is wanted on that totally unrela
" and our legal contributor, paul callan in new york. does it matter if conrad murray does or does not testify? first to you, paul. >> i don't think it makes an enormous difference in the case. obviously he's a central figure in the case. but the jury is going to know that conrad murray has been convicted, essentially, of causing the death of michael jackson. and, frankly, i don't know how much he would add, even if he did come in to testify. there are lots of other sources of information about how he was hired and who hired him. so i don't think it will make that much of a difference. >> jim, let's talk about the money here. is this case all about the money? we're talking about millions, possibly billions for the jacksons if aeg loses this case. is this really -- conrad murray seems to believe this is all about the money. aeg says it's all about the money because they're not suing dr. conrad murray. is that what it's about? >> it feels like that, don. it really does. it's funny, when you talk about the money and you talk about $40 billion being the number we've heard bandied about
, judge hackett and paul callan -- i'm not going to let you in on this one. >> we've got to give kudos to that guy. okay. >> we had so much breaking news with the passing of margaret thatcher, i have to cut it short there. but thank you to both of you paul callan and glen da hackett. stay tuned for watching everyone. "around the world" is next. >>> welcome to "around the world." i'm suzanne malveaux. >> and i'm michael holmes. hello, everyone. welcome to the program. we begin in england of course. >> political toughness earned her the nickname "the iron lady." today leaders from around the world remembers former british prime minister margaret thatcher. she died today of a stroke. >> she was 87 years old. britain's first female prime minister. we've got a lot more on this life and her legacy coming up. >>> and in syria, a massive car bomb tore through damascus killing at least 15 people and injuring dozens more. the bomb went off in an area near one of the biggest public squares in the syrian capitol. now, the square surrounded by state buildings including the central bank of syria. >>
in that country. paul callan and judge joining us. nobody gets prosecuted for this, though in fact there are cases. paul callan what am i breaking if i'm going to montreal and go to cuba and use my american passport? >> it's complicated, really. there's no law that actually prohibits you from traveling to cuba. the law in question prohibits you from spending money in cuba because we have sanctions against cuba in place. so your purchase of a plane ticket and then your purchase of food and lodgings once you get to cuba would be a violation of u.s. law. but you're absolutely correct. there have been almost no prosecutions under this law through the years. i think i found vague reference to about 16. that's over about a quarter of a century. very, very few prosecutions. >> and not small too. i think i read one case where a guy was facing over $6,000 in fines for his trip. i want to move onto another -- this is a celebrity blogger moment, former important star arrested on saturday night for allegedly assaulting a man that she knows. he's apparently made a citizens arrest. and then held her until the p
cans and bottles of liquid. joining me cnn legal contributor paul callan. he's facing 166 charges including murder and attempted murder and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. does this evidence mean anything to the case? >> i think it's important evidence with respect to the case because homes will be inserting an inen sanity defens and the materials in the apartment indicate planning that he was thinking about his target and getting ready for this mass homicide, mass shooting. that makes it difficult for him to proceed with an insanity defense which kind of requires you not to understand the meaning of what you're doing under the codes as they're currently written so i think it's evidence for the prosecution. >> other evidence shows dr. lynn fenton warning police a month before the shooting spree. why didn't she seek hospitalization for holmes? >> this is the blockbuster evidence we're seeing in more detail in this document revelation. dr. fenton has been criticized publicly for not having warned of the danger that holmes posed. now, obviously we know she did make a warni
civil liberties union, the case, let's talk about this, bring in paul callan, cnn legal contributor. good morning. >> good morning. >> a district attorney agreed with the aclu but later overturned twice by a federal appeals court. what happens if the supreme court upholds the ruling and says myriad genetics can patent these genes? >> this is a fascinating case and a fascinating field and i'll tell you why. think alexander graham bell and the telephone, think thomas edison and the light bulb, american inventors. the reason their inventions were protected under u.s. law under in fact the united states constitution is because of patent law. you invent something, you could profit from the invention at least for about 20 years and then it falls into the public domain. now, in the area of genes and medical devices, a lot of companies are going in, studying parts of the human body and designing tests and that's exactly what myriad did in this case. they looked at a long stretch of human dna, about six feet in length. they isolated a small segment of it the size of a pinhead and that segmen
." with us now from new york is paul callan, former new york prosecutor. what are police trying to find out from him at this point? >> i think we're trying to find out what things, first, are there other unexploded bombs out there that have to be recovered to protect the public and secondly they're going to want to know how did you get all of this explosive material? who sold it to you? where is the chain? are there others who may be involved in some kind of a broader conspiracy? those are the two areas that i think federal authorities would be exploring. >> obviously there are a lot of legal implications about this and a great deal of discussion about this. i want to you listen to what alan dershowitz said. >> the government made a mistake claiming the exception to miranda when the police said there's no public safety, it's solved, it's over, there are no further threats but the fbi are saying there are enough further threats to justify an exception to miranda. they should have given him miranda. >> he raises an interesting conundrum, the police hours before said the streets are safe at le
of the most respected public defenders in the country her resume includes the shoe bomber richard reid. paul callan we talked about this extensively. this attorney is a heavy hitter, she has experience in this field in terms of defending someone like this. question to you, possible strategy. what do you think it is? >> well, it's two things. it's going to be cooperation and mitigation. i say that because her primary objective is to try to avoid the death penalty for the suspect, and to do that, she really has to give federal authorities something and possibly he'll come forward and provide information that will be valuable in discovering other terrorist networks or how the explosives were obtained in this case. that would be the cooperation element that's a playing card. the second is mitigation and by that i mean they're going to try to convince the department of justice that he's 19 years old. he was influenced by his older brother, possibly his mother from the video that we've seen and that that's a fact that should be taken into consideration so that he does not get the death penalty. so
. much more emotional than substantive. >> i want to bring in our legal analyst paul callan. and danny. when ken says his job is excrucia excruciating, that's probably an understatement. these are things that change as well. people are only begins to figure out what they need to do and what is going to cost them. where do you start? >> it is very difficult, but the place you start comparison to civil lawsuits. let's say you were involved, you're a construction worker and lost your leg in a construction accident, what kind of an award would you get? i recently handled a case just like that here in new york city and i will tell you the case and i've seen other cases settle for between $7 million and $10 million for loss of a single limb. now, compare that to the boston situation. we have a number of people who not only lost a single limb but multiple limbs. there's inadequate money. i mean, this fund as generous as this fund is the last figure i saw there was $10 million available for distribution. so if you gave $7 million to one person, there wouldn't be anything available for everybod
public defenders in the country. earlier today i talked to paul callan about her and what her defense strategy might be. listen. >> her primary objective is to try to avoid the death penalty for the suspect and to do that she really has to give federal authorities something. and possibly he'll come forward and provide information that will be valuable in discovering other terrorist networks or how the explosives were obtained in this case. that would be the cooperation element that's a playing card. the second is mitigation. by that i mean they are going to try to convince the department of justice that he's 19 years old. he was influenced by his older brother. possibly his mother from the video that we have seen. and that that's a factor that should be taken into consideration so he doesn't get the death penalty. i don't think they realistically think they are going to win the case. i think they are going to try to avoid the death penalty. >> i want to talk about this issueover the miranda rights being read to dzhokhar tsarnaev and when that happened and why. house intelligence commi
